What our members say...
We first tried PurpleSpace membership in 2015 and were hooked. They are practical, fun, generous and courageous. We trust their challenge. We treasure their advice. We are proud to be members.
We expect our people to lead networks at the side of their day job. That brings a fabulous lifeforce because people bring their passion. And sometimes you have to pull the drains up - PurpleSpace helped us to ask the difficult questions to get better results from our networks.
We had taken part in a national benchmark exercise but were overwhelmed by the actions recommended. So, we ran some lived-experience focus groups and bingo - we got more useful information in those sessions than we ever had before.
